Roland Weigelt's
A free utility for quickly adjusting and managing the properties of webcams and other video capture devices.

Why CamProps?

The picture quality of many webcams can be improved by manually tweaking properties like focus, exposure or gain. When doing so, you may run into a few issues, though:

CamProps is a simple utility that lets you

CamProps works with all webcams and video capture devices that support opening the webcam driver property dialog (either the default provided by Windows or a specific dialog by the manufacturer's driver)

How to...

Set up your first configuration

Activate a configuration

Tip: Create different configurations for different lighting conditions and name them accordingly (e.g. Morning sun, Cloudy afternoon, etc.).

Backup/restore your configuration settings

The configuration settings are stored automatically and will be kept intact when you install a new version of CamProps over an existing installation. Nevertheless it is a good idea to create a backup of your settings, especially if you spend time on creating multiple configurations.

In the same menu, you also find the Restore settings function.

Enable logging

If CamProps does not work as expected (especially if it did in the past), you can enable logging, which writes all exceptions that occur to a log file in a location of your choice. Please include a log file when you contact me for assistance (click Roland Weigelt at bottom of this website).

When you enable logging for the first time, CamProps will restart for the change to take effect. This also logs the startup (which contains the most interesting information).

Note that the log file will contain reported exceptions even if everything is working fine. You will also find video devices here that do not work with CamProps.
